Gamma Folk

i don’t think i will ever tire of braided & woven necklaces. the more i see, the more i like. Gamma Folk is a jewellery line by Brooklyn based designer Lily Piyathaisere, and i like her necklaces a lot. these are from Collection Two, but i think the entire shop is worthing checking out. her pieces are also sold over at Madesmith, which i featured last year.

Our vision is to combine traditional techniques with thoughtful, statement jewelry. Influenced by folk art, mysticism, pop culture and the bauhaus, Gamma Folk is a celebration of aesthetics, experiments in technique and the preservation of craft.

SAMMA

my taste in jewellery ebbs and flows, but at the moment i’m really digging on beautiful statement necklaces – especially with chunky beads or bold metal work. i discovered Hanna Sandin’s line SAMMA thanks to Pour Porter, who currently stocks many of her fine pieces of jewellery.

Hanna Sandin founded SAMMA in 2009. The jewelry line developed out of Sandin’s work in sculpture and is defined by a stripped down vocabulary of form; elemental lines and simplified shapes cast in non-precious materials — brass, bronze, copper — combine and repeat, while slight variations and irregularities, a result of each piece being handmade, add nuance, warmth, and tactility.

Of A Kind Giveaway: Iacoli & McAllister

the giveaway is now closed, the winner is stephanie – congratulations!


today i’m really excited to offer one lucky reader the chance to win this beautiful Nude Necklace No. 8 by Iacoli & McAllister – one of only 35 designed especially for Of A Kind. i actually blogged about Iacoli & McAllister’s necklaces before, and i’m truly jealous that i can’t enter this giveaway myself!

When movie characters work in art galleries, they wear impossibly cool necklaces like this one. Composed of nude ultrasuede and super-lightweight, boxy brass beads, it doesn’t need much to make your look special – a crisp white shirt, maybe, or a silk top. And some tortoiseshell glasses would really hammer home that whole smart-and-stylish thing you’re going for.

all you have to do to enter is subscribe to the Of A Kind Newsletter and leave a comment below *

the giveaway is open to anyone anywhere in the world as Of a Kind offers international shipping. readers outside the US must please note that, as with all international shipping, you may be subject to your country’s customs charges / import duties upon arrival.  the giveaway ends on Friday 2 March, and the winner will be randomly selected in a lucky draw.

Of a Kind Giveaway!

*  the giveaway is now closed * congratulations to Laura! *


this is the first time i have ever done a giveaway on the blog – a pretty momentous occasion! and who better to kick off the giveaway fun than something special from Of a Kind? literally, very special. each week Of A Kind releases a limited edition item in a small batch, which is designed elusively for them. that means you can be one of only a few people in the whole world who has a one of a kind piece.

so, i’m psyched to offer one lucky reader this beautiful Pyrite Pyramid Necklace by Sophie Monet.

Pyrite – also known as fool’s gold – is courting the spotlight these days, and we haven’t seen the material put to better use than in this pendant necklace created by Sophie Monet. The shiny, irregular surface of the rock plays well with the smooth, geometric chunk of shedua wood.

…one of only 20 made! all you need to do in order to enter the giveaway is subscribe to the Of A Kind newsletter  (so you’ll be the first to hear about their new releases) and leave a comment below.

i’m also happy to tell you that this giveaway is open to anyone anywhere in the world as Of a Kind offers international shipping. readers outside the US must please note that, as with all international shipping, you may be subject to your country’s customs charges / import duties upon arrival.  the giveaway ends on Monday 12 September, and the winner will be randomly selected in a lucky draw.
